Fans and former cricketers are still worried about KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer, while a few days ago all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja had said that coach Rahul Dravid has prepared the team for the World Cup 2023. At the same time, now off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin (Ravichandran Ashwin) has given some great suggestions to the chief selector and management, which can overcome the problem of middle order of the Indian team. Ashwin's suggestion comes at a time when the situation is not clear about Rahul and Iyer, so Pant has already been out due to injury. At the same time, the form and style of some batsmen has become a matter of concern.

Ashwin said the rise of Tilak Verma has caught everyone's attention. He also appeared very effective on the slow pitch of the West Indies in the first T20. His batting style is different. Tilak loves playing pull shots. The off-spinner said that usually Indian batsmen do not play pull shots at the beginning of the innings. Indian batters play pull shots later, but Verma's game shows that he has a natural grip on the pull shot and he delivers the ball across the border like any Australian batsman. It's too early to say, but his innings was fantastic.
Ashwin said the T20 format is a test for Tilak Verma's ability. There are three matches left against the West Indies, while the 20-year-old batsman is also part of the team against Ireland. After this, the Indian team will play the Asia Cup. And selectors choose as substitutes in that team due to their left-handed ability. Ashwin admitted that Sanju Samson should be given priority in the middle order given his performance in ODI cricket.
"If we don't have many back-up batsmen, will the selectors think of Tilak Verma? Interestingly, Tilak Verma is a left-handed batsman and there is a lack of left-handed batsman in Team India. Here Ravindra Jadeja is the only left-handed batsman, who plays at number seven. "You look at the off-spinners from top teams. The Kangaroos have Ashton Agar, England have Moeen Ali and leg-spinner Adil Rashid. Most teams don't have wrist spinners to challenge the left-hander. This is the reason why Tilak's rise is very important. It's too early to say, but will the selectors see Tilak as an alternative?
